gone down

A quick update on my infected eyelid: the ciprofloxacin seems to have worked. It's been a few days, but the swelling has finally begun to subside rather significantly. The skin of my left upper eyelid had been swollen for so long that the distension may actually have caused the skin to stretch. Last night, when I noticed the reduction in swelling, I also noticed that the eyelid was looking slightly wrinkly. This isn't the sort of thing that a person standing a few feet away from me might notice, but the wrinkles were evident when my face was a few inches away from a mirror. Will the skin eventually re-tighten? I have no idea. For now, though, the important thing is that the swelling has gone down.
